History and use
This Honour Board was presented to Members of the Ipswich Branch of the United Society of Boiler Makers and Iron and Steel Ship Builders. The Ipswich Branch, founded in 1909 was an offshoot of a British society of the same name which had at that time been in existence for over 70 years.

The Honour Board marks the contribution of employees of the Ipswich Railway Workshops, most particularly Boilermakers, in both World War I and World War II. Many individual unions, associations and societies marked the contribution of members through the commissioning of Honour Boards.

Inside this Honour Board there is a list of Past Presidents of the Ipswich Branch of the society and a lithograph with the emblematic features of the parent association.
